Since winter 2013 a growing coalition of individuals and organizations – mainly from the U.S. peace movement – have been involved in intensive collaboration and actual planning for a re-energized effort to build a movement to end all war (henceforth: World Beyond War). The underlying ideas and vision of these efforts add the until now unavailable movement component to the work of the War Prevention Initiative.
Since its inception, the War Prevention Initiative has been involved in planning and steering World Beyond War with individuals such as David Swanson, David Hartsough, Medea Benjamin, Alice Slater or Leah Bolger – all of them widely recognized in the peace movement. Several thousand individuals like Nobel Peace Laureate Mairead Maguire, Time Person of the Year Coleen Rowley, Noam Chomsky, Johan Galtung, David Krieger or Cindy Sheehan are among the early supporters for this campaign. More than 140 organizations signed on as well.
